Ed Sheeran's past relationships
Right now, Ed seems to be completely in love with his girlfriend and their relationship is going on smoothly. But his past relationships weren't the same, since most of them lasted for a short period of time.
In 2013, Ed was linked to singer Ellie Goulding. The two singers were seen together at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Regarding the heated rumor of their relationship, Ellie said,
“I have absolutely no idea where that came from and why it was turned into a such a big thing.”
However, despite Ellie's denial, there was room for suspicion regarding their relationship as neither of them formally said that the rumors were false. Currently, Ellie is having an affair with boyfriend Casper Jopling and the two were even spotted kissing during their Italy trip.
In 2014, Ed was reported to be having an affair with his former tour manager Athina Andrelos. Before that, he was said to be in a relationship with Scottish singer Nina Nesbitt.
